THE ROLE

As a Software Engineer, you’ll build features into the Dispatch platform that will lead us toward our goal of redefining same-day delivery. You’ll dig deep into many parts of the system, and will work across the full stack to create new ideas and improve existing functionality.

We believe that product development is more fun when deploying early and often, splitting up work into bite-sized chunks and getting feedback from real users as quickly as possible.  We also believe that a single engineer should be empowered to develop a feature from start to finish, and that the technology stack should be simple enough to make that realistic.

This is a full-time exempt (computer employee) role that reports to the Manager, Software Engineering.

  • Deploy your projects to production frequently and monitor the results to ensure quality and positive outcome
  • Actively solicit feedback from teammates and customers to improve usability of the features being built
  • Work with the rest of the product team to come up with ways to make the product better overall
  • Perform other duties as assigned (to be less than 10% of your responsibilities)
WHAT WE’RE LOOKING FOR

  • Strong interpersonal skills that will keep you productive on a fast moving team
  • A track record of learning new technologies on the fly and finding the right tool for the job
  • Must be a positive, self-driven team-member with a desire to learn
